Progress on two long-standing issues at the May PC meeting

At the May Parish Council meeting two issues which will be very familiar to anyone who has followed our work over the past year(s) took a step forward. The Parish Council has been highlighting the regular flooding over the railway bridge for a long time and has, at last, had a constructive reply (and an apology) from Network Rail suggesting that action may be taken at some point in the (distant) future. And also Cllr Brenda Gray was able to report that she has persuaded the Highways department to conduct a study of the potential feasibility of the footway/cycleway on Natland Road. Again action will surely be a long way off, but the first step must be to know how much the work will cost before we can work out who could fund it and how. Well done, all!
